(Three Floyds Dark Lord Russian Imperial Stout) Bottle 650ml at home, served into a snifter. Orange wax -vintage 2013, ABV 15% thick pour that gives a pitch black coloured beer with a small and thin dark brown head on top, low retention. The aroma has soy sauce, molasses, bourbon, vanilla, dark fruits, prunes, alcohol. Taste is sweet with dark fruits, prunes, fudge, bourbon, vanilla, sugars, molasses, alcohol. Thick body, fizzy carbonation, sticky palate. Great.

My first perfect rating. This was the 2015 version and it holds up to the hype. Wonderful and unique. Roasted malt with a well balanced bitterness. Slight sweetness and chocolate with coffee. Beautiful color and smooth and oily. Carbonation was just right. I’m sure there are others out there but this was astounding.

Fuck you. I have no other words. Literally nothing to say. It’s like a beer in a beer in a beer. 10/10. And i had a lot of imperial stouts. But seriousely, fuck you.

This was a bottle share with Matt, Jess and their friends. Jet black pour with an aroma of plums, figs and other demonic dark fruit. Taste is more dark, aged fruit with dark (natch) chocolate and a rich sweetness. I enjoyed the 2011 and 2015 vintages and I thought there was much more going on in the 2011 Dark Lord. Both were impressive beers.

650ml bottle @ Alex’s. 2016 Vintage
Pours an opaque black with a small tan head. Nose presents dark fruits, leather, and molasses. Flavour is quite sweet, again with dark fruits, leather, and molasses. Full bodied with a semi viscous oily feel.

I enjoy pretty much everything coming out of 3 Floyd’s and the Dark Lord is no exception. Strong sweet flavours mask the 15% kicker

650ml bottle (thx, Louis-Philippe B.!) at Alex’s. Vintage 2016. Pours an almost black with a dark beige head. Aroma is oily, leather, dark fruits. Taste is veeery sweet, dark fruits, very oily. Crazy stuff.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2017 Butelka z 2016 w Chmielarni. W aromacie pumpernikiel, owoce, czekolada. Smak mocno słodki, kakao, wino, melasa, lukrecja, marmalada. Piwo jest potężne, wykleja i jest super głębokie. Jak na imp stouta zaskakuje potężną owocowością, niczym marmalada z czekoladą. Wybitne.

Rocznik 2016 - To co dzieje się w tym piwie to po prostu poezja - w aromacie czekolada, pumpernikiel, spieczona skórka od ciemnego chleba, dżem figowy, daktyle. W smaku mega słodkie, zalepiające usta, akcenty chleba, fig, czekolady. POEZJA!
